Please note: We meet at 2 pm on the sidewalk in front of Firestone 16646A Bernardo Center Drive, San Diego, CA, 92128. If you want to leave prior to 5:30 pm, you need to arrive early enough to find a place to park outside of the marked parade route.
Thanks for your interest in healthy food and healthy families.
Happy Independence Day!

    We want to talk with people before the parade starts, because they are more likely to be interested before the parade starts, especially if they have friends or family in the parade.

    Lauren, Zen, I am very sorry. I see that I wrote Sandy’s email address incorrectly. As Sura pointed out, it should be [email protected]. How can we get this email address corrected in the Contact info above? Thank you for your help, Dan.

    Hurray! Three (3) cheers for Sandy. :)
    Sandy Jackson generously agreed to be our leader for our group on the sidelines of the Rancho Bernardo parade. She will be made leader / contact for this page and her contact information will be available shortly.

    Important note to anyone interested in joining part of a group on the sidelines of Rancho Bernardo parade to celebrate our freedom to know what is in our food. We could use someone (how about you?) to agree to have your contact info added to this page and be the contact person for people who have questions, and of course show up at the parade. I will help you with questions, and I do not envision other responsibilities. I have setup sign making party Saturday June 29 10 am , Jimbos Carlsbad , and will bring supplies. I will have someone setup a FB page. I will provide flyers. Coordination will occur through this web page and the to be created FB event page.

    I will ask interested participants, both here and those not RSVPed, who will lead. I am willing to help the leader but I am already helping with three other events simultaneously as well as handling behind-the-scenes Label GMOs San Diego administration/management/planning so I will not add another role.

    commented 2013-06-18 09:15:45 -0400
    Daniel would you be the leader? You can still order 24 shirts in a bunch and have all marchers pay you back.
  • Daniel Osman
    commented 2013-06-18 05:25:08 -0400
    Thank you very much for changing the time on the parade. We do not have a leader and we did not order t shirts.

    commented 2013-06-17 17:58:55 -0400
    I just changed it. Also just a reminder that we are getting ready to send out the Moms Across America t-shirts but we have no leader/address for your parade and we need to have that by today so do you have a leader in mind or an address that we can use so everyone can get their shirts on time? Thank you so much! If you have any questions, please let me know! Have an awesome rest of your day!! :)

    Hi Lauren, how can we get help to change the time on this webpage from 6-9 to 2-5?
    Although there is additional planning to be completed, the current time listed is definitely wrong.
    Better start time is 2 pm. Daniel Osman, Label GMOs San Diego coordinator.

    Hello! I know your parade was rejected but if you all ordered shirts, we still need an address so they can all be shipped out. We need to have the address by today so they are sent on time. Thank you!! :)

    I’m actually not part of the parade, I’m just one of the administrators on the website who helps set up the parades. Have an awesome time though!! :)

    Important Notice:
    The following is the plan.Meet at 2pm. Exact location still to be determined. Note: I have no way to contact Lauren Weinstein, Lianne Lish, Bridget Darby, or Kelsey Sample. My email address is [email protected]. We plan to create a FB page.
    Parade group lineup is at 3pm. Parade starts at 3:30pm. We will be handing out flyers on the sidelines. If there are a lot of us, too many to stand in the same area, then we can split up, and some people can walk down along the parade route to pass out flyers, or even walk to the end of the parade route and pass out flyers to the parade participants when they are done. I do not yet have edit access to this webpage. Note that the correct start time for the parade is 3pm lineup and 3:30pm start walking, so we should arrive at 2pm because we want to connect with people on the sidelines when they are reserving their spot, while they are still attentive, before they are watching their families and friends in the parade.
    You can reserve (Free) signs or flyers from Label GMOs San Diego here:

    All those ideas sound good! I liked your Plan A idea. It seems that it may be the easiest way to go without getting in trouble and what not.

    Important Notice. Our application was rejected. Now we need to decide what to do: (a) to peacefully and positively be on the sidelines and bring signs and pass out flyers; (b) to join individually the “Wheels” brigade of non-MAAM individuals on wheels (baby buggies, skates, bikes, etc.) with a sign attached; © join the Temecula parade; (d) your new/creative idea. Contact me with your ideas/opinions: [email protected]

    Hey there! After going through the list of parades, we have noticed that there are marchers, but no leader. We were wondering if there was any way someone could step up and become the leader so it is possible to march during the Fourth of July parade. Thank you so much for your time and I hope you have an amazing day!! :)
